This segment of the Central Polk Parkway (SR 570B) will be a four-lane (two lanes in each direction) toll facility that extends from US 17 to SR 60, a distance of more than two miles. Design is the third phase of the FDOT project development process. Construction plans, specifications and final estimates to build a project are developed during this phase.
The Central Polk Parkway (SR 570B) design started in Summer 2020 and is ongoing. Current efforts within the project limits include:
- Evaluating partial cloverleaf interchange at US 17
- Evaluating at-grade intersection at SR 60
- Evaluating a shared use path from US 17 to SR 60
- Analyzing environmental impacts
- Identifying Right-of-Way needs
- Conducting additional analysis needed to finalize the design
This project is consistent with the Project Development and Environment (PD&E) Study for the construction of the Central Polk Parkway (SR 570B) from U.S. 17 (SR 35) to SR 60 in Polk County, Florida. Approval of this study is documented in the State Environmental Impact Report SEIR that was signed on August 18, 2021.
